My Life in Cheshire : Abigail Lucy
Abigail Lucy Eardley, Luxury Wedding And Events Planner, Abigail Lucy Ltd
How would you describe yourself?
I’d say I am a very driven, passionate person and a perfectionist, most definitely. My friends and family would probably describe me as thoughtful, bubbly, spontaneous and a little bit of a ‘Frank Spencer’ from time to time haha!
Where is home and work?
I’m originally from Stone, Staffordshire but moved to Manchester five years ago! Immediately, I felt settled here, Manchester has always has felt like home to me. I came here to build a life for myself, I had no family or close friends here at the time of my move so it was quite daunting - but I knew if I wanted a career, I needed to be in a thriving city.
What did you want to be when you were younger?
Well, when I was really little after travelling to Florida, Disney and having the amazing opportunity to swim with dolphins, I wanted to be a dolphin trainer! Mainly, because I thought I could just swim and dance with them all day. Once I discovered you need a marine biology degree - I realised maybe it wouldn’t be so easy!
Name a few of your favourite places to be...
The beach with a cocktail in hand and a good book - I’m a sun baby. I really enjoy travelling. I love discovering and exploring new places, especially destinations with rich heritage and culture, and exotic places with lots of physical outdoor adventuring, climbing, kayaking - I love challenges! And of course, the sofa (sad but true) I love being snuggled up with a good film, snacks and family!
What / who inspires you?
I have so many influential people in my life, of course, my mum being one but a lady who has always inspired me is my Gran. My Gran has a condition called fibromyalgia, it is a chronic widespread pain which effects every muscle in her body, but if you met her, you would never know - she is such a positive person. My Gran always has a smile, she taught me that laughter really is life’s medicine.
What was the last gift you gave someone?
VIP tickets to watch Hans Zimmer live in Brussels, Belgium. My partner’s favourite film is Interstellar which Hans Zimmer produced the soundtrack to, so I surprised him.
Tell us a fun fact?
I used to be a gymnast and competed in national competitions. I still can’t help but flip around in empty spaces, so I am currently learning the trapeze - which is so much fun and a great workout! I am also learning a new language - Persian!
Who or what would you place in Room 101?
Bad manners. People who are selfish and people who are are unkind and judgemental. Life is to short, we should love and support one another! Oh, and men that honk their horns at you, I mean why? It gives me a heart attack every time!
What’s been your biggest life lesson?
“This Too Shall Pass.” Nothing is forever, everything will pass and that time is the greatest healer. Believe that and you’ll see we all have the strength to conquer anything we want!
